Didier Deschamps, coach of the French national team, confirmed that Tunisia, its opponent in Group D of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, is a strong team, and that its arrival to the finals is proof of that.
Deschamps said in statements to Tunisian radio station Mosaique, published on its official website, that the Tunisian team is among the teams that his team has never faced at the official level, despite the presence of many Tunisian players in the French League.
He added that he has a lot of respect for the Tunisian team, and that he knows very well the capabilities of his players, indicating that his team will prepare seriously for that confrontation.
Deschamps won the World Cup with the French national team as a player in the 1998 edition in France and as a coach in the 2018 edition in Russia.
It is noteworthy that the fourth group in the World Cup is witnessing the presence of France, Tunisia and Denmark, along with the team rising from the international supplement, and it is one of three teams: Australia, the UAE or Peru.
